Mother’s Strength


(Inspired by Kee Thampi)


I’ll always remember Mother -
she was tender as could be.
And yet with great fortitude,
she stood like a tree.

She was anchored in hope
and firm in her love.
And with a steadfast faith,
she looked above.

Her legacy to her children
is the 'example' of her life:
She was a mother and friend.
And she was a loving wife.

Her strength (an asset)
was a shining light, thus,
a very important lesson
Imparted unto us.


*Note: thank you Kee Thampi for suggesting that I write a 'personal' poem about my mother, like you wrote about your 'mum.'
